CSX Transportation switching local at work. Forest Park Illinois USA. June 2007.

I took this mid day photo looking west, from the South Harlem Avenue bridge in west suburban Forest Park Illinois. A two unit set of EMD roadswitchers are seen at work, spotting loaded covered hoppers full of bulk sugar, at the Ferrara Pan Candy Company. These covereed hoppers are being spotted over the slightly elevated "Dump Track", where bulk sugar is unloaded. The Ferrara Pan Candy Company is famouse for making "Lemon Heads" hard candies.
